informative but a very small exhibit for the $12 fee. The guide was very knowledgeable but with limited English skills.

The guide was really good and informative. Spent a good fun hour looking for both tiny and enormous frogs.

We went in the evening as the frogs tend to be more visible and active. It's not actually a "frog pond" which is a good thing. A real frog pond would be crawling with snakes looking for supper! It is really a series of huge frog terrariums. However, the tour was very interesting and informative, and the variety of frogs was fantastic to see. Our 4 and 6 year old loved it. It can get a bit crowded around the glass as everyone is trying to get pictures, but other than that, it was lots of fun.

I did go at night, which is the best time. I really enjoyed it, but the exhibits were a bit on the small side, and because we were a large (too large) group to take around only the Guide held a flashlight which made sense, but was frustrating and I wish they had more guides and limited the group size better.

We enjoyed this place very much, however it is seems to be a bit overpriced. The guide was very competent and gladly answers all questions. The ticket includes 2 visits, so plan one of your visit after dark, when most of the frogs are active.
